  1. I'm studying over at Oxford University this summer and finally had time to make it over to the botanical gardens!

    All photos are the D700 and Nikon 105VR

    Your photos are great. The 105 f/2.8 VR is on my wish list.

    I wished I had shot #1 for myself.

    It would be a 20"x30" gallery wrap print somewhere in my home.

    Wonderful images............the 105mm VR is one of my favorite.
  9. Looks like a great place to shoot Joey, and you did it very well. Love that 105VR. One of my all-time favorites...
  10. You should check out some of the college gardens. Certain colleges really take a lot of pride in their displays, eg Magdalen.

    PS Nice pictures btw ;)

    Excellent. This lens does a great job with flowers. I assume these are hand held.
  12. great job bro...cactus and bee are by far my favorites but the others are nothing less than amazing.
  13. Thank you! It's been a dream of a summer :eek: 

    Wow, Thanks a lot! Glad you enjoyed it!

    It's a good one, if your primary concern is Macro, consider the non-VR version as well, its a bit cheaper and just as sharp. I use mine a good bit for portrait photography so the VR is somewhat handy.

    Thanks! I like the photo as well, not sure I want a pinkish colored flower on my wall though :wink:

    Thank you sir!

    1 and 10 are with a tripod. Thanks!


    It was unbelievable, I tried my best to capture it!

    I'll have to try to get over there. I'm at worcester, it's very nice as well. Lots of images from it are on my blog.

    All except 1 and 10

    :biggrin: If you're nice to me I'll let you borrow the lens when I get back to ATL :wink:
